chamber of commerce this afternoon in los angeles. romney will focus on the financial themes he's built his campaign around.. and he's also expected to promise to "permanently fix" the u.s. immigration system. romney will also take part in a question and answer session with spanish-language tv network univision later this week. a recent gallup poll shows romney trailing president obama by a margin of 64 to 27 percent among latino registered voters. today marks the one-year anniversary of the grassroots movement that began with a call to "occupy wall street". "occupy" demonstrators were back in the financial district in mark the anniversary. but police kept them well back from the new york stock exchange.. and fewer than a dozen protesters were arrested. the "occupy" movement that started in new york a year ago later spread to other cities across north america and europe. just ahead: a new report about home prices around the country and how chicago compares. and, still to come this midday: what to do with your old iphone if you're buying the latest version. and later in lunchbreak: it's
.t.c. awed to be extended. -- ought to be extended: the u.s. chamber of commerce, national governors association, the governors wind energy coalition, american farm burea federation and many major national newspapers have all weighed in saying this is important to our country's future. members on both sides of the aisle, have i mentioned, have said the p.t.c. should be extended because they know and they've seen the positive effects of the p.t.c. on their communities and across the country. they also know that wind energy and renewable energy more generally is the future. it's the wave of the future. there's no question. all you have to do is look at the rest of the world. look at china, look at spain, look at denmark, look at developing countries. they're all investing in clean energy. it is not something they're doing to feel good. in sum extending the p.t.c. is a no-brainer. it's common sense. we need to do the job we were sent here to do. we ought to be extending the p.t.c. as soon as possible. it equals jobs. we ought to pass it as soon as possible. madam president, i'm going to

, the corporate entities, chamber of commerce, "free trade, nafta, cafta, permanent normal trade relations with china, will be the greatest thing since sliced bread." all right? the end result is that in the last ten years, we have seen 55,000 factories in america shut down, millions of decent-paying jobs lost. you go out to elderly people and they say, "i can't buy a product made in america anymore. where are the factories? where are the decent-paying jobs?" so i would like to see the president get up there and say, "you know what? we're going to rethink our trade policies. i want corporate america to start investing in america, not in china." other things that he could be doing, certainly, i think the much maligned stimulus bill, to my mind, was one of the most important pieces of legislation passed in my lifetime, in my state, money into bridges, into roads, into head start, into sustainable energy, created 6,000, 7,000 jobs when we needed it a whole lot. you need more of that. i just got off a plane a little while ago. believe me, our airports are in trouble. roads, bridges, schools, w

's about speaker thomas birkett read in the contentious 51st commerce. if you got a chance uribe camille enjoyed meeting the author. if you have that, come anyway and listen to him talk about the book in its research and doing a and maybe get some pointers. at an outcome would probably have some budding authors in our audience either here or on c-span. let me just briefly introduce today a soft authors so we can get into the program. i would mention that there is an article by our speaker, guy gugliotta in our current edition of our capital film magazines, copies of it in the back. please pick one up on your way out. it's also available online in and interact diversion at the historical society's website, and www..u.s. chs.org. our speaker today is guy gugliotta. after commanding a swift boat in south vietnam he became a journalist who has covered latin america, served 16 years as a national reporter for the "washington post" and has written extensively on science and policy issues for a variety of publications including "the new york times," "national geographic," wired, discover and th

. >> the irony is that earlier in the day he'd been talking to the hispanic chamber of commerce and he highlighted in his speech to the hispanic chamber of commerce the direly high unemployment figures for latinos and makes a joke if only i were latino i'd be doing better than i'm doing. at the very least, bad idea? >> it's a joke. he's used it before. he did on univision, where they were laughing and talking about, hey, you were born in, you know, your folks were born in mexico. so could you claim this? and so it's kind of a joke that's been going back and forth. but the key is, you look at barack obama, black americans are extremely proud to have him as president of the united states. one of their own, if you like. and they vote overwhelmingly, 90-some percent. and so the idea is, hey, maybe i could get a higher percentage of hispanics if i could claim that. and it's a joke. that's it. we all should be laughing and not be too concerned about this. >> you know, there was a while back in the beginning of the campaign in the primary process when i did an interview with mitt romney and w
the program is one third smaller than it is today. >> so for the commerce and from florida he is 200,000 beneficiaries, for because 7000 medicare advantage. you know, 10, 12, 15,000 beneficiaries will lose the plan may have today moved back into the traditional program. i don't be that as a positive development. fee-for-service has advantages and can be an important program, but one has to recognize it is not coordinated care. it is fragmented care and doesn't deliver higher-quality care. there is so much are to prove that. >> so your testimony today is the trustees, the people calling and strikes are saying that any period of six years, a third of the beneficiaries are going to be out of the system and it is your conclusion that one third leaves because of the downward pressure on reimbursement. either they take themselves out. the beneficiaries do, or carriers no longer participate in the program. as i write quick >> slightly less than one third come to just below that most of the reasons why. >> by yield that. >> mr. reichert is recognized for five minutes. >> thank you, mr. chair
can build a new american dream commerce driven by innovation and creativity, by education and yes, by cooperation. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real oppor
the state commerce to special interest groups. interesting to note, many of these special groups aren't even from minnesota. make no mistake, this will be passed in a bipartisan land -- and a bipartisan land exchange is going to get done. i will not allow special interest groups, acting in bad faith, to abuse the nepa process and use frivolous lawsuits to black and derail a land exchange. if i could trust special interest groups to act in good faith and the federal bureaucracy to act promptly, i would include nepa in this legislation. the teachers and minnesota school kids in minnesota can't wait years, if not decades. currently some of the schools in minnesota have classrooms with over 40 kids and some school districts like mine in north branch have been reduced to a four-day school week. i ask, is that progress? this legislation will generate a lot of funding for our schools and create good-paying jobs. importantly, the minnesota education investment employment act will not eliminate a single acre of boundary waters land. in fact, it would include wilderness acres to the existing boundary
testify before the commerce committee to give us the benefit of their immense experience, neil armstrong and gene cernan were able to do it. their testimony in may of 2010 helped us craft the nasa reauthorization act of 2010 in which we managed to pass a balanced plan that prioritized nasa's development of future exploration beyond low-earth orbit while putting significant resources into commercial development of crew vehicles to the space station. we passed it unanimously in the united states senate, very bipartisan, and we passed it on neil armstrong's birth tai. -- birthday, august 5, 2010. when the space shuttle was retired, some thought the space program was ended. you know, i took a group of cub scouts actually to johnson space center in houston just a few months ago. they have a great program for our scouts -- well, for any group that actually wants to go and spend the night at the visitors center and they get to tour nasa and hear about the great feats of our country in space. and one of the little boyce said to our nasa administrator -- and one of the little boys said to our nas
the commerce clause was not very relevant. they still worried about that and that's why the program was designed that way. one of the reasons it's so difficult to get states to cooperate with the federal government. as has been outfitted to come up there with the gao in fiscal year 2009, nine different agencies spent $18 billion to administer 47 different training programs. the report points out almost all federal employment training programs have included those with broader missions such as multipurpose autocrats overlapped with at least one program that provided similar services to similar populations. so there simply a lot of services being provided and oftentimes not provided in a very coherent fashion, at least from my standpoint. i should make clear there's a lot of people in this room that have worked actively at the department of labor. i am not one of them, so i defer to them. they have a lot more information about the structure of these programs. betsy made some very important points. but from the standpoint of looking outcome it does not seem as if we have a very coherent
been more frequently. anybody engaged in trying to do harm to the united states or world commerce sees it as an opportunity. they can remain anonymous for some time. that is probably why anonymous has chosen the name. you are not completely anonymous as some -- they are not completely anonymous, but there are some areas where these groups have leverage and can exercise leverage over the world economy and critical infrastructure. host: ron, independent line. caller: i keep hearing comments about cyber attacks and terrorist attacks. i think my government has done more terrorism around the planet than any other government. i hear these things trying to keep the populace scared and terrified. we have another pentagon died trying to prop up the military industrial complex, is what i feel. guest: i do not work for defense contractors. i am independent. i have my own business. i did serve in the military for 26 years. i can tell you from personal experience and historical experience that the united states does not engage in terrorism. in terms of the actual threats, these threats are not ofte

began the week on monday in l.a. speaking to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. he did a telemundo interview and then this forum yesterday. something he hasn't done until now really, until after he clenched the nomination after he formally became the nominee after the convention. he's also spending a lot of money on hispanic ads lately. so we're seeing a sprint to the finish all out effort by mitt romney in these last 40-some days. it was a very good crowd for him. his people did a great job in packing the house with some of the strongest supporters in south florida. president obama will have a similar crowd today of his strongest supporters. he got some tough questions, john, at the beginning. a real grilling on the immigration issue. but then they moved to the economic and education issues. you could see this was a mitt romney at ease. i could tell that he's been preparing and briefing for debates. this was not a debate format. it was close. he did well. >> you talked about immigration there. one of the reasons that mitt romney is trailing president obama 2-1 among latino voters
on foreign policy. peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations ending tangling alliances with none. i think america should stop acting a the world's policeman and take care of our orders and secure our country first. i do believe in a strong national defense but the optimism word is defense, not offense. we don't have the machine any to continue the wars. we're wasting over a trillion since 2001 on just on bombs. i think our money could be more wisely spent here at home. >> moderator: todd akin. akin: it is important to have a tore run policy to start with. you have to so have basic principles and guidelines and perspectives where you want to go as a president in terms of foreign policy. that needs to include iraq. it needs to include afghanistan. it needs to include a whole lot of other countries as well and the problem is we haven't had that. in fact what it seems like the weak and vacillating policies we have almost punished our friend and helped our enemies. right off the bat we decided to turn our backs on two of our allies, the czech republic and poland where we had plans to
